    Hey guys, I want to make a tiny step in the lipo world. I have some batteries in mind, but not a charger. My budget is safely $40 or less. (Preferably less, obviously) I've been looking on ebay, it looks as if some of the chargers don't even have plugs. EX: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tenergy-Air...08716?pt=Battery_Chargers&hash=item2c67217c0c

    Either like that, or they have deans. And no, I am not switching to deans, and no, I don't want convincing to switch to deans. I've tested deans before, they're not worth it to switch all my guns to. Just looking for a charger. Thanks.

    Are you serious..... Well, that's a relief. Why do I see some 14.8V ones with Tamiya?

    The small connector is the balancing connector. The other one is the discharge connector (usually JST, deans, tamiya, XT-60, etc...)
    I personally use an iMax B6 charger. You can get the charger and power source for <$40 on eBay, and several other sites.

    Anyway, no need for this thread. Marine linked several others.
